Tzedek, Tzedek, Tirdof: American Jews and Social Justice

June 3, 2014 10:30 AM-12:00 PM
This class will familiarize participants with the work of American Jews who have “made a difference.”  We will discuss the writings of Jewish activists such as Clara Lemlich Shavelson, Stephen Wise, and Abraham Joshua Heschel and explore the ways in which traditional Jewish values, the Jewish historical experience, and trends in American society shaped their activism. These prominent figures, and others,  serve as inspiring role models for individuals and groups engaged in tikkun olam (repairing the world) even today.
 
Package: $90/$75 Members
